Question Which Aftermarket Exhaust Should I get?

Hi All,

So here is the deal. I want to get aftermarket exhaust because mine sucks, it pops like hell from a leak, and I have done everything I can to fix it short of welding the whole thing together. It looks like crap, has lots of rust and I just want it gone.

I need some help deciding which ones to get.

So my choices are:

Vance & Hines Cruzers - New for ~$350 or Used for ~$250 + shipping

Jardine Turn Out (same side?) - New for ~$225 or used (I think They are Jardines and in very bad cosmetic shape ~$150)

Cobra Slash Cut (2 sided or same side ) for roughly $280 either one

What I want is loud but not completely unbaffled loud. (I want this because I like the way it sounds, personal opinion, not looking for other opinions on this please.)

Cost effective and complete replacement of current exhaust, I would prefer not to use my current headers or heat shields. I realize that is the main difference between the above mentioned exhausts, V&H seem to be complete replacements, while the others seem to use somethign exsisting based on what I can tell, yet V&H are clearly the most expensive.

Any input / suggestions based on what you guys have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Well the V&H are best for the overall replacement I believe but you could probably find headers in better shape on ebay if you want to save some bucks and go with one of the other two. Or the redneck option i chose lol cut em off at the headers weld on some strights and header wrap em but obviously this leans things out and requires some more tuning and lots of noise!!! but out here I like having a way to get someones attention before they side swipe me.

V&H Cruzers. I have them. They fit perfect, look great and sound amazing.
Just keep in mind.. they are on the loud side. The idle isn't loud but start up and cracking the throttle is.

best price on v & h i have seen so far is $320 shipped from morepower racing.
I ordered a set but have not arrived yet, so I can't give a qualified opinion yet except to say "that's what I would get".
